Refund & Exchanges
We are offering a special extended returns policy over the festive period. Purchases made on our website from the 1st November 2020 can be returned at any time up to the 15th January 2021, or 30 days after delivery of the goods, whichever is later.
All the normal restrictions apply, for example items purchased on sale cannot be exchanged and non-returnable items remain non-returnable.
If you placed your order between 1st March 2020 and 1st June 2020, you will have 180 days to return your item back to us. Your item must be returned in its original, undamaged packaging and must be in an unworn condition. Exchanges do not 'reset' the 180 day window.
We offer a 30 days return period. If you purchased your item on or after 2nd June 2020, you will have 30 days from the date your received your item to return them to us for a refund or an exchange.
Your item must be returned in its original, undamaged packing and must be in an unworn condition. If the original box or bag of a returned item is damaged by the customer, then a 20% restocking fee will be deducted from the refund. Please note, this rule does not apply to the mailing bag.
Exchanges do not 'reset' the 30 day window.
You cannot exchange sale items.
You can only exchange an item for another item of the exact same value - such as a different size of the same shoe. If there is a difference in price, you must RETURN the already purchased item and then buy the new item, treating it as a completely new order.

All items being returned from outside the UK must be clearly marked as returned goods on your customers paperwork.
